وایت سوپریمسیستها با طبقه متوسط جدید مسأله دارند



In the last few days we have seen a surge of rallies by white supremacists in various cities of the United States. Although political issues such as free speech and hate crimes raised in this turmoil were previously discussed (1), but the real cause of this uprising is a more fundamental shift in the US and global economy as it was reviewed yesterday (2). We are witnessing the creation of new wealth in new industrial nations such as China and India which on one side benefits elite owners of American corporations investing in those countries adding to accumulation of wealth in the U.S., and on the other side, a new middle class is rising in China, India, etc. who largely immigrate to United States, Europe, Canada, etc. and are forming a new middle class in the West. At the same time, many American workers who used to benefit from high paying manufacturing jobs in the U.S. and Europe, have lost their jobs and fallen to destitution. This is the source of conflict between a large portion of white population with the new upper middle class in this country, a middle class that has mainly immigrated from other countries and brought money with them.  It is true that there are still opportunities in finance and other services in the United Stated to use as a ladder to move to the status of new upper middle class in America, but such opportunities require different sets of skills and background than manufacturing; and definitely the path through industrial manufacturing sector for upward social mobility has long been lost and does not seem to come back to the U.S. In a way, the path of American Dream has changed in the United States of America and this is the source of the current turmoil that we are witnessing in this country.

Hoping for a democratic and secular
